Celebrity says it’s committed to Bermuda

I've only sailed once on Chandris/Celebrity Cruises, back in the mid 1980s it was Chandris Fantasy Cruises and I really enjoyed sailing on their ship the GALILEO, excellent trip and I always thought they were really good for the NY to Bermuda run.

I have never been to Bermuda but have been to the Caribbean both east and west many times. Is there much difference?

Been to Bermuda many times { easy cruise from New York} and I love it. It is very very clean, pretty, and the blossoms smell so heavenly. It is quite an upscale Island all the buildings are pastels, in Pinks, yellows, blues, etc. Good shopping to boot:)

Delightful island. If you plan to take a cruise to Bermuda, select one of the few lines such as HAL out of NY that actually dock (and stay a few days) in Hamilton. That puts you in the centre of the city and you can use your ship as your local hotel. Great transportation system of buses and ferries to explore the island.

I made one cruise to Bermuda from Norfolk on the Celerity Horizon. I loved it.
Celerity left Norfolk. We are the closed US port to Bermuda. Celerity please come back. Norfolk has a brand new cruise ship terminal but now the ships are gone. We have no cruise ships all summer and no cruises all winter.
Starting in Dec. 2012 Norfolk will have passenger train service.

Follow the money. If a cruise line can make more money on a consistent basis, that's where they'll home port their ships. Bermuda is an expensive port for passengers and the cruise lines. It's expensive for the passengers due to port fees and it's expensive for the cruise lines because they have to close their shops and casinos while in port plus passengers are off the ship from morning until late in the evening. The only profit cruise lines make is from onboard spending. If people aren't buying drinks, using the casino or buying in the shops, there's little or no profit to the cruise line. :(

This is just my impression. If you took the Virgin Islands and cleaned it up and took out all the rude people and put in polite people, you would have Bermuda.
